Muslims celebrate major holiday amid curfews, virus fears

JERUSALEM (AP) — Muslims around the world have begun celebrating Eid al-Fitr, a normally festive holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The three-day holiday beginning Sunday is usually a time of travel, family get-togethers and lavish daytime feasts after weeks of dawn-to-dusk fasting. But this year stay-at-home orders mean many can only celebrate with immediate family, with virus fears dampening the holiday spirit. Some countries, including Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, which is home to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, have imposed round-the-clock holiday curfews.
